I just called, but it's a bunch of Russian girls working out of Extended Stay in San Mateo. They claim to be intimately familiar with Mr. Pinus. They say he doesn't tip well. I might have to pay a visit. One of the Moscowvites claims to have all the ZNGA numbers somewhere under her thong. Is it the sweet smell of money or something else?
Mr. Pinus just returned my call from Extended Stay. He was pretty terse, and not exactly polite. I'll cut him a bit of slack because I know he was preoccupied with some Ukrainian blond.
I'll quote him directly:
"You should have sold at $13 just like Katzneberg and myself."
That's a hard dose of reality.
